Make sure that you attend your dentist at least twice a year. Having a professional dental cleaning at least two times a year can improve your overall oral health. Those who practice good oral hygiene regularly at home with brushing and flossing usually do not feel discomfort during a cleaning. But those who have failed to follow their oral health habits may feel uncomfortable and sensitivity during the dental cleaning. The dental specialist can use a painkiller before the cleaning to ease any discomfort.
Our dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are done by registered dental hygienists. To complete the dental exam; your cleaning process will include the following:
Eliminate tartar: Tartar is a hard plaque that can be found on the tooth cover both below and above the gums. It can only be extracted with special dental tools.
Eliminating plaque: It is a sticky colorless film containing food particles, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is removed, the bacteria will produce poisons that can infect the gums and possibly causing periodontal disease.
Polishing Teeth: Mild polishing eliminates stains and marks that remain in the teeth. When this happens, you can now enjoy that clean teeth feeling.
Here at Smile Zone, we have doctors and dental hygienists with years of experience in dental cleanings. We are happy to welcome you and give you guidelines on how to maintain your healthy smile. Visit us today!

Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening is an exam conducted by the dentist to check signs of cancer conditions in your mouth. It is done to identify mouth cancer as early as possible. If the disease is detected earlier, you will have a great chance for cure.
People with no signs of mouth cancer should still have an oral cancer screening. The screening will consist of a visual examination of the mouth and palpation of the neck and jaw. Regular appointment to your dentist will improve the chance that any random changes in your oral health will catch early at a time when cancer can be treated more quickly.
Individuals with a high chance of oral cancer are possible to benefit from the screening. Here are the factors that might increase the risk of oral cancer:
-Using any tobacco such as cigars, chewing tobacco, cigarettes, pipes, and snuff.
– Sun exposure history which increases the chance of lip cancer
Visit your dentist to know whether you need a oral cancer screening or not. And also ask about ways you can minimize your chance of oral cancer.
Please feel free to contact us or visit our office for more information about oral cancer screening. Our dental team would be happy to assist and evaluate your condition.
You might feel a little hesitant to go through a surgery when the dentist suggests it for a problem in your mouth. We know that surgery should not be taken quickly, but you don’t have to worry.
Dental surgery is a broad term that involves simple tooth extraction to a complicated method such as dental implant surgery. Dental surgery can improve the function and the appearance of your smile.
A dentist can only perform a dental surgery. They are the specialist who conducts diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea and oral cancer.
Usually, people will not know that they need a dental surgery. This is one of the purposes why you have to visit your dentist regularly. During your checkup, your dentist will evaluate and identify problems that may require surgery. If it is possible, you can ask your dentist how long the surgery will take and what type of medications will be involved. Also, you need to figure out if you need to avoid any foods and how to handle the pain and how to take care of the wound.
If you need any help or assistance, you can visit Smile Zone during our clinic hours or give us a call to schedule a consultation.
